This is one of the fastest gaming laptop money can buy, thanks to including one of the most powerful mobility GPU ever made, it normally goes at about 1205 pounds, however, for limited time, you can get it for £688.85 inc vat, many chose this laptop just for its extremely powerful graphic card, basically, it plays every game at mid-high setting very smoothly.

Its powerful GPU is backed up by 4 gigs of ram and 250gb of hard drive and a powerful Core 2 Duo mobile CPU, it also has 17 inch 1920x1200 screen, if you chose to swap in get a blu ray drive in the future, it can play back Full HD videos at full quality, no down sizing, the proper thing, this is THE ultimate laptop in terms of price/performance ratio.


PS at base price, OS is not included, you can config for XP , though price increases up to £746.35 inc vat , its still the absolute steal of the month.

Very nice, although I'm not too keen on the processor personally, HOT for the price and GPU:w00t:, crazy deal! :thumbsup:
#2
Yeah the cpu is the real bottleneck, plus all the reported issues with the 8m series cards failing, its great value for the price though if you want to take the risk..

A mini review.



For reasons of comparison, Same company sells almost identical system with updated CPU and GPU, 70gb extra memory for £1781.35. :whistling: I'm not kidding

Here:

I doubt there is much difference in performance, but the price is more than doubled :thumbsup::thumbsup:

Only G84 and G86 GPU are affected, 8800m GTX is G92, its not affected. (source:)

CPU is not as highly rated, but never the less its still solid stuff.:w00t:

Hmmm i thought they had discovered the 8800m gtx was also prone to early failures, however it looks like im wrong then, great find then for the cash! Am very tempted but already have 2 laptops, 2 desktops and an nc10 netbook, and the other half will probably leave me if i buy this.. :viking:

Only the new one have it I think, that the 1700 quid one

G92's also failing, thought i'd read it somewhere.. Worrying as i've just bought one of these!

#13
If you search Google, the general opinion is that the Inquirer may be jumping the gun a bit. I'm not saying they are not correct, but most of the forums I've read say there simply is not enough information to prove or dis-prove the claim at the moment. Only time will tell.

Fantastic laptop for the money. Deserves way more heat. HOT!

I'm hoping your right, the cards are fairly easily to replace anyway (due to the socket architecture) and im going to hammer mine for 12 months, so if its gonna go it will happen during the warranty.. Ive convinced myself this is an absolute bargain and im glad i bought one.. if anyone else wants one get it fast as stock is running out..

I just need to find a cheap bluray drive to fit this with now and a laptop bag that will fit it (its Fat!)

17" 1920 x 1200 TFT screen
Intel Core 2 Duo Mobile T5750
4GB memory
250GB hard drive
DVD writer
Nvidia 8800M GTX graphics
802.11n wireless
Bluetooth

This is an incredible spec for £688 :o:o:o
#16
Yeah, its 4gb of 667 ram too, the fastest it will support, Gigabit ethernet networking, srs wow equipped sound system with mini subwoofer (really does help the sound, or it did on my acer anyway) and is made of aluminium where it matters.. thing is incredible and their old price (now showing where the out of stock should be for the vista models) is in excess of £1400.. This should be a thousand degrees by now!
#17
Just came to post this myself, despite the poor cpu, its a great machine. They are the same case that rock use as well.

I think they can offer you two years warranty for under £80, peace of mind.

There is blu ray bargain here, its external but the price is just...:)

:thumbsup: Good choice mate. 8800m GTX, 4 gigs of RAM, just wait until you load Nvidia's v180 software update, it will be out of the world experience, in a laptop.:w00t:

PS. Within the warranty, if you feel like it, you can always say, overclock the CPU and GPU :whistling: to stress the system:whistling:

Its based on a clevo - highly highly regarded build:

Yep my thoughts exactly (not that i would of course :whistling:) besides as soon as the warranty is up i will rip out the cpu and replace it with one of the faster T9 series..

Is there a laptop version of the 180.84 software?

http://downloads.guru3d.com/

I'm not sure which exact one, as it varies between OS, though I heard release 180.43 works best, I'm not quite sure though

By the way, I assume you didn't order an OS? :whistling: if I may suggest, you ought to try microsoft's Windows 7 free public beta, since this laptop is really designed for Vista or above, given windows 7 support vista drivers, I think it would be a good and reliable combo; beside W 7 is somewhat less resource demanding, and overall performance will be better.

Since your soon a clevo owner, you might like to register at the notebook review forum if you have not already, just in case there are problems which there shouldn't.

Nice one, have some rep!

The windows 7 beta is shut again, missed it yesterday, but will try it out when its available. As the X80r is turning up today i will put a clean xp install on it and drop some modded 180 series drivers from laptopvideo2go on it and test with 3dmark06 etc.. wish i could have bumped the cpu spec up a bit though.. thinking about ripping my old lappy apart and using its T7700 cpu and HD-DVD drive..
#26
Might be worth seeing if you can get in the windows 7 beta for 9 months of OS to see if you like it. That way you don't have to spring for an OS just now and can pick one up cheap in the medium term.
#27
very hot deal, shame i don't have the money at the mo

Smokin' Hot!!!!

wish i had the cash for this so much this is some laptop for the price

Windows 7 beta is 180 days with a key or 30 without.
#31
For this money i wouldnt bother if your looking at gaming there arent many laptops that have the juice i would get a desktop the new dell xps core i7 is around this price maybe a little cheaper and is way more of a machine and at £668 is a bargin. I would get a better graphics card than the one included but for one the spec this laptop has its around £70.

You must remember that you would struggle to build a i7 for what dell are selling there for its a minimum of £450 for just the X58 board and 920 i7 cpu thats not including the memory hdd gpu and warranty and loads of other things.

Why is everyone quoting 688, people are aware that is without OS, which makes it 750 quid with the cheapest OS, which is the same price i paid for my ASUS G50 of higher spec.

It doesnt even say if the windows they supply is 64Bit, which you would want or else your not gonna be using all the memory.

You got a G50 for £750? Where from?! The UK spec of the G50 is very poor compared to this anyway with a much lower res, smaller screen, and a 9700gt compared to the 8800gtx in the nova (which is exactly the same card as the 9800gt i might add) Though the asus does have far more storage capac and a better cpu. This still doesnt allow it to beat this nova though, with Cnet getting a score of 6,663 for the asus in 3dmark 06, compared to the 9,021 i got with my nova in 3dmark 06 this morning. Bottom line, the Novatech X80r is a far better gaming machine for less money.

As for the OS, i'm assuming most people will be like me and have a spare OS they can bang on it, or will go for the new windows beta to test it with the latest vista drivers (i'm gonna do both, dual boot xp/vis 7)

And even with 32bit OS's 4gb is better than 3 by far as it will run in dual channel then, even though the OS only reports 3.1-3.5 gig..

I did loads of research into this laptop, and the chassis its based on, before i bought it. The only thing that was putting me off was the cpu as the cache is very small and will have an impact on intensive tasks. However the X80r is built into the 'Extreme Edition' of the Clevo M570RU chassis (M570RU-U), based on the santa rosa chipset, which will allow a straight drop in of the fastest socket p intel extreme cpu's, which makes this very easy to upgrade in the future once the price of the oem x9000 series chips drops.. you could if you wanted to drop in a T7700 or T9 series chip to bump up the performance considerably, for less cash than a new build of a dell xps M17x0 (which suck)
